  • BANPES - A CONVERSATIONAL COMPUTER PROGRAMME FOR POINT AND INTERVAL ESTIMATION OF TIME-DEPENDENT FAILURE RATE BY A BAYESIAN NONPARAMETRIC METHOD

Abstract

This report describes a conversational computer program for the Bayesian nonparametric estimation of time- dependent failure rates. The prior guess must be presented in the form of a hypothetical sample, which can be given directly, or derived from an exponential or Weibull distribution. The observed sample may be progressively censored. A point and interval estimate of the quantiles of the failure process is calculated.
